Fictional Bucket List

For those of you who don't know, a bucket list is a list of wishes/goals you want to achieve during your life, for example swim with sharks or gamble in Las Vegas etc. A fictional bucket list is the same idea, but with a fantasy twist. 

So here's my literary bucket list:- 

1. Spend a term as Hogwarts, go shopping at Diagon Alley and play a practical joke on the Weasley twins (Harry Potter, J.K Rowling) 
source
2. Offer Achilles and Patroclus some relationship advice (Song of Achilles, Madeline Miller) 
source
3. Explore the spires of Oxford with Lyra and find out what shape my d√¶mon takes (Northern LightsPhilip Pullman)  

source
4. Shape-shift with Loki and swim with J√∂rmungandr to the base of Yggdrasil, the world tree (Ragnarok, A.S Byatt 
source
5. Have a jousting lesson with Brienne, learn about poisons at the House of Black and White and stand at the top of the wall with Jon Snow (Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R Martin)
source
6. Party hard at Gatsby's (The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald) 
source
7. Make Rhett Butler give a damn (Gone with the Wind, Margaret Mitchell) 
source
 had so much fun coming up with this list. II'd love to know what you'd include in your fictional bucket list- add your suggestions in the comment below.
